Head Master's Notes

Dear Parents and Students,

The Spring Break and Revision
Today is the start of our Spring Break. For 75% of the students and their parents, this means a two- week period where they can relax, get involved in activities and re-charge the batteries ready for the Summer Term. For the others, it is a time for solid revision in preparation for the external examinations, which begin shortly after the start of term. We trust that their revision will be thorough and wish them luck and success in their (I)GCSEs, AS and A Levels.

Spring Concert
The Spring Concert earlier this week, taking us back to the 1980s, provided a fantastic evening of entertainment. Well done and a big thank you to all the choirs, bands and soloists who contributed to the success of the Concert. A special thanks to Rick Preston, who co-ordinated all the bands and to Nicki Elcome, for all her hard work and dedication with the choirs and overall direction of the Concert.

LAMDA Musical Theatre
There will be a LAMDA Musical Theatre presentation on Friday 13th May at 18h30 in the Hall. Students who are preparing for their LAMDA examinations will be presenting their entries. Entrance is free and the evening is open to all.

The Last Pantomime
The recording of the winter production of Aladdin is now available on DVD (Blu -ray). You can get your copy from me for only 10€ - a great memory for all those students, parents and teachers who were in involved in the production.

National Championships for Cross Country
Congratulations to Alex MacFadyen, in Form 11, who competed in the French National Championships for Cross Country last month in Le Mans. Despite a fall and being trampled on by runners with spikes, Alex finished a very creditable 165th/400. The stitches, making it difficult to sit down, will
be a firm reminder of his performance for a while to come! Well done, Alex.

Last Years’ Prize Giving Winners – Vouchers
If your son/daughter won a book voucher in the Secondary Prize Giving at the end of June last year, you need to make a trip to the English Book Shop in Valbonne to choose your book, if you have not already done so. The vouchers will remain valid until 31st May 2016 after which they will have no value.

Dog Owners
Although I have mentioned this before, if you bring your dog onto campus, you need to keep a close eye on it and perhaps not let it roam on the artificial playing surfaces. Without going into graphic detail, cleaning dog mess off the artificial grass is virtually impossible, particularly if it has been trodden on – for offenders, a bucket of hot water and a scrubbing brush are available from the office. Thank you for your co-operation
